Ms. Parlade from Philadelphia PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Everyone is a Reader

My students need balance cushions as an equalizer to show their ability to learn. In our case, it is a simple wiggle seat.

My Students

I am so grateful you are reading this and willing to help my children. I am an interventionist and work with students who have yet to break the code of reading. 90% of my students have added on challenges to their reading difficulties such as hyperactivity.

Thus, I would like to provide wobble cushion balance discs for seven chairs.

These inflatable wiggle seats ground the active students making it possible for them to engage their brain and focus on the lesson.

Thank you so much for championing our students and believing that obstacles are only there until we shift the paradigm.

My Project

I have been working with hyperactive students for years. Recently one of my parents told me about the wiggle seats and actually brought one to school. It really does work. It triggers something relaxing in them while simultaneously allowing the students to work more like their peers.

It is my goal to have these special cushions available to the students who could benefit from them.

It is not enough to provide good intervention for my students when they are not able to focus on the lesson. Intervention does not happen solely by their physical presence in my room. I need to do everything possible to engage all their senses to make learning permanent.
